  1. My corn-kernals slipped right on, easy-peasy.
  2. I wish it were a simple as the corn kernal, it's still there.
  3. AKA the kernal part number 51 21 1 809 735
  4. Do you have the corn kernal on the door latch mechanism? Cris
  5. should I be able to get these grommets as well as new corn kernals at any BMW dealership?
  6. I'll second the "corn kernal" fix JB...That fixes about 2/3 of door closing issues.
  7. any BMW dealer will have them in stock - the same "corn kernal'" also fits other BMW models = six series, E21, E28 . . . . get a couple for future
  8. And we learned recently via the FAQ that those kernals have a fat side and a skinny side. Have to put them in the right way for them to work the best. Details, details. Scott
  9. Excellent, Nick, thanks so much for the pictures and details. These little doohickeys have a similar function to the "corn kernal" used on the closer of a 2002. I will drop a line to Andre Ed Z
  10. I've been using their stuff for 25 years, and for some reason I can never remember that kernal of information. I always have to read the label to make sure it is the one with the additive.
  11. +1 on the latch kernals. Your BMW dealer should have them. As far as the jack stands, I like to put a piece of wood on top of the stand to protect the frame rail and help distribute the weight.

  13. " the Corn Kernal" that belongs on the door latching finger. It cushions and aids the rotating latch to engage with the striker in the door jam. any BMW dealer has them for $1.29 They are also on old 5 and 6 series cars. part # 17 in this diagram http://static.bmwfans.info/images/epc/NTI4NV9w.png
  14. That seller "Tilux" sells several parts way above prices you can find easily on-line. Door hande gaskets he sells for $20, door latch "corn kernals" goes for like $15. I guess all is good if you can get it....poor sucker bidders!
  15. measuring from the tab that the kernal goes on back to the body of the assembly, I can get .020" of wiggle... (which the computer tells me translates to .5 mm) I did not measure the one on the car, but it felt a little wigglier. The one on the driver's door was a little looser, as would be expected; but they both seem to work okay.
  16. The corn kernals and the gromits that go in the ends of the push rods for the door opener, and one for the lock. Take out the door latch, clean it lube it and put it back in. It will be as good as new. You will need 3 per door https://www.pelicanparts.com/More_Info/52208238999.htm?pn=52-20-8-238-999-M9&SVSVSI=60
  17. I have had this problem, and there were two causes, two different times. One time it was caused by the mechanism on the door being gummed up to the point where it had trouble releasing correctly. It would especially happen when it was colder outside. I took the door card off and cleaned the mechanism and that fixed it. I have also had the striker piece on the B pillar come loose enough that it impacted the door latching properly. That is an easy fix - the big screw just needs to be tightened. And that kernal thing is necessary, if you don't have it. Mintgrun'02 should get an award for figuring out one side of the kernal is slightly different than the other. That is a perceptive person to see that. One of mine was on the right way (that door closed easily) and one wasn't (that door closed slightly less easily). Scott
  18. Cool! Looks good. I agree re the Topaz comments. Get those bumper shock covers and corn kernals and the center support bearing going. Might as well look at the giubo "while you're down there." I personally am not a fan of the 320i turbines on the 02. I think there are better options out there. That's just me. Big Point: Good pickup. Your tii searching is over.
  19. Excellent advice on droping car before adjusting anything, a high speed run will do you good too, get her feelin right, a few sweet German words cant hurt also. The latch kernals are a must, door wont thunk without them, check your opening rod mechanisms from interior door handles to latch, they should have plastic grommets to settle the rattles when shutting doors, rogerstii has those too

Do the adjustment with the door window down. Be sure to gently close the door a few times afterwards with the glass up while you check for any interference. July 12, 2007 3 replies
  21. Actually, Jay is right- bigger gap= longer spark= bigger flame kernal, or better chance for one. And Mr Yunick also said 'longer is better', in reference to TIME. So the LONGER the sparks stays struck, the better. I seem to remember he said that the biggest gap you could RELIABLY run seemed best, but that it wasn't a big deal, and that you should run the gap conservatively to avoid misfire from a spark that can't jump due to too BIG a gap... ...but I read that a long while back... t
  22. Tom was wrenching on these cars while still in the womb. When I first met him, he was an annoying, know-it-all thirteen year old. Years later, the guy has so many kernals of information stored away that it puts many of us to shame. Guess who I turn to when I need to know that trivial bit of info? How about the spring wire fuel line retainer on top of the K-fish pump? Guess who knew it should be there? Yeah, his daily driver is a turd, and he's the first to admit it. (Mine is too, but it gets driven lots. Motherlode 400+ last weekend)
  23. Sounds like it is only latching on the first detent of the door catch. Open the door and cycle the door catch to see the two positions. You may be able to move the striker plate on the body out a bit. When you loosen the screws to move it, do not remove them all the way. There is a plate behind the catch that wil drop into the body. PITA to get back out. Use some masking tape to mark the position of the catch. Also, verify that you have the corn kernals(puffers) on the door catch. Do the adjustment with the door window down. Be sure to gently close the door a few times afterwards with the glass up while you check for any interference.
  24. One is the plastic cap on one leg of the latch that grabs the pin on the door jamb. It is basically shaped like a corn kernal, with it you have to slam the door to get it latched. PN 51 21 1 809 735. The other piece is a small plastic bushing that inserts into the small arm on the latch that the actuator rod fits into. There are three per door, one on the handle, one on the latch and one on tha arm that the lock button rod attatches to. Without the small bushings there is a lot of play between the handle and the latch. When I replaced mine, the play was gone and the annoying rattle in the door went away as well.

  25. hey everyone - I've got a random one that I'm not even quite sure how to search. Long story short - i bought new 'kernals' for the door latch to help with difficulties closing the door. I figured why not clean the entire door latch assembly after years of grease and grime. No problem removing the receiver and it's 4 screws (1 larger and 3 smaller). When I went to reinstall, I lined up the receiver with the holes upon placing a screw through, a plate on the reverse side of the body fell down to the bottom of inside the car and is seemingly unreachable. Crap. I'm already trying to use a magnet extension to try and grab it by stick it down inside the holes but not having any luck. Any other access points would be really helpful.
